The U.S. Consulate General Amsterdam informs U.S. citizens of demonstrations scheduled to take place at the Museumplein (by the “IAmsterdam” sign) on Saturday, April 8, and Sunday, April 9, 2017, from 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

The stated purpose of the demonstrations is to bring attention to the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China.

Even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence.  You should avoid areas of demonstrations, and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.
